Er... I'm pretty sure this fire started on December 26, 1956... not 1957.

The audio used in this video is excerpted from a CBS Radio Workshop episode titled "Fire at Malibu" which aired on January 20, 1957 and was written by William N. Robson.

Also, that date is supported by a story in the "Malibu Times" dated November 21, 2007 titled "A brief history of Malibu wildfires".

Very nice video, though. I also recommend listening to the original radio dramatization.
